With this particular model, their mouth (or snout ) does not fit inside the bowl entirely.
So he/she is forced to eat whatever they can reach from each compartment. They have to work their way around the bowl..
What used to take Jack 20 seconds to eat, now takes him about 3-4 minutes.
The other version is the steel ball. It moves around while the dog is eating thus interrupting him... I think both work equally well....
Yeaaa Hooch! Glad your feeling a little better!
Everyone wants to kiss a bullie
Hi guys and gals, thanks for the replies however Hooch is very sick still, my girlfriend took him to vet this morning after he stopped vomiting. Dr Heller feels its a GI issue and hes a bit concerned because he said hes not even 2 yet and he has these issues already. Blood work was done, we are waiting for results and he had two shots today, we are stressed and we are hoping things will get better soon, I hate seeing my girlfriend so stressed because she is an amazing bulldog mommy and an amazing person, she just feels so bad for Hooch and in turn i feel bad for her and him and it stresses me out!!....Ugghhh
bland diet to see if it helps? (boiled chicken and rice)
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Sorry to hear Hooch is not feeling any better. I hope the Vet has better news or can find the problem to make him feel better. :hugs:

Hello all, sorry for not getting back on sooner, its been a tough few days but its seems like Hooch is feeling better since his visit to the vet. He has not thrown up since Monday and he is now eating 4 small meals a day, hes still on meds but soon will run out and we are hoping that he will not need meds. His bloodwork came back negative and the vet seems to think its gastro interitis(spelling?) or Gird. We have been trying to keep him under stimulated and on a strict routine which my girlfreind ensures this happens. The only issue is that his stool is soft but we know its from the meds. Our stress is dwindling and we are optimistic!
We also use the slow feeding ball..it helped immensely! Jake would throw up after inhaling his food. He hasn't thrown up his food since! Sure hope Hooch is doing well. I agree with others, no matter how many or what breeds of dogs you've had in the past...Bully's are sumpin else!!
Its just very frustrating because like a member said earlier in this thread, they cant tell us whats wrong and my girlfriend really does everything humanly possible for this dog and she feels bad because everytime he gets better something else happens and hes not even 2 yet and its like a snowball effect, dog gets sick, my girlfreind gets stressed because she feels bad about him being sick and then i get that way because i hate seeing her upset and seeing the dog sick makes it double the stress on me! I just want him well and to see her stress free
There is light a the end of the tunnel, good luck Hooch well be pulling for ya!!
